Glitter Snowflake Merry Christmas Card

 I love this beautiful snowflake card front die.  This was a fun easy card to make… I spent more time weeding out the tiny pieces from the snowflake die cut then anything else I think lol.  So I got this pretty glitter sticker paper from the dollar tree… the trick to die cutting this stuff is to peel off the backing and place it on cardstock FIRST and then die cut…. Perfect cut every time, even on an intricate die like this.

Ok so I cut the card front die out of the blue glitter sticker paper that I had adhered to cardstock.  I then cut a smaller square of purple glitter paper using the same process but I just cut it big enough to fit around the large snowflake that I wanted to layer and ran through big shot again.  I then took my scissors and cut away everything around that snowflake.  Then I attached it in its place on top of the blue.  I adhered it flat over the original snowflake, it really pops that particular snowflake out from all of the rest.  I then cut another smaller die snowflake from the blue glitter paper to layer on top, this time only gluing in the center so it can be lifted and more 3-D.   I cut a frame to fit around the pretty snowflake card front from white cardstock…. It seemed a little to plain so I ran it though an embossing folder to give it some texture.  I backed the card front onto this pretty lavender designer paper. And then mounted to a white card base.  I cut the Merry Christmas word Die from the same purple glitter paper and for one last touch I added a white glitter gem to the center of the layered snowflake that I had colored with a purple spectrum noir alcohol marker - LV3.

For the inside I kept it simple and used the same designer paper that I backed the front with, this time using a stitched die to cut it out and stamped my sentiments inside.   And for a final touch I took one of the extra pieces from the extra purple snowflake cutaway and attached it at the top inside above sentiment.  Oh yeah and I took another small snowflake die from my stash that cuts a cute shape out of the center and cut from blue glitter paper and only used that center to top off the inside purple snowflake.
